Remember that r2196 and r2197 hasn't been merged yet to the 0.2 branch. I'm 
waiting some confirmation beyond me that it works as expected.

The HLFS base system should be easy to support, is a matter to add a switch to 
select what libc-based-book should be used. The BHLFS packages are like the 
BLFS ones, plus not all dependecies for Xorg are inside the book :-/

CLFS add another variable: boot or chroot. Also, some build variables must be 
set by the user, then maybe a clfs.config file could be imperative. And will 
require a separate stylesheet to generate the scripts.

BLFS is another thing, but maybe not as difficult as look at fisrt glance... 
(brain in work...)
